where one of the hosts, cheri jacobus, had questionable reasoning for photo i.d. laws. let's hear what she said. >> voter photo i.d., obama lost every one of those states. he can't win in a state where photo i.d. is required. so clearly there's something going on out there, and until there's a way to have something done about it, where when you report it, you know it's going to be looked into, the other side just says, oh, well, you're just poor losers and that sort of thing. >> your tone suggests you're a little upset with me. you're preaching to the choir. >> no, we get that. >> i'm with you completely. >> well, get this, president obama lost georgia, indiana, kansas, and tennessee not because of their strict photo i.d. laws but because of their conservative voting majorities obviously. >>> next, a whole new meaning for a campaign in shreds. we're talking literally. the remains of some documents with information about mitt romney's campaign motorcade went through an unlikely disposal process. they became the confetti found by bystanders at the macy's thanksgiving day parade. some par
about that? couldn't the democrats start introducing a bunch of laws on a state level and all of these states across the country that would be anti-voter suppression laws, enforce the republicans to legislatively take a stand on it. >> absolutely, ed. we should definitely do that and continue to unite with the voting advocates groups. we are not going to sit by and let them continue to push this kind of stuff. a number one lesson we should learn, what happened in 2010 cannot happen in 2014. we have midterm elections in congress but we also have general assemblies and governors mansions across the state where folks have to reup. they have to reup to the voters. we need to make sure that every voter understands clearly that folks who try to suppress the vote should not be in office. it is a malstrom of foolishness and the people cannot allow this to stand. these folks need to be voted out of office, ed. >> they do. which brings me to the next question. are you going to run for secretary of state in the state of ohio? you know i am seriously considering that and i plan to make an
, in other words, that they wouldn't be prosecuted under local laws like afghan laws. he doesn't feel that's going to be as big of a hurdle in afghanistan as it was in iraq. he says president hamid karzai is much stronger in his ability to say, we want u.s. troops here. he says one of the things that's going to be key is the afghans' demand for a lot of money in the later years, say, five, six, seven years out, how much money the afghans will want in return, wolf. >> because the president kept saying during the campaign, as you know, chris, that all u.s. troops would be out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. there's still about 70,000 u.s. troop there is right now. and most of them are presumably going to be there for the next two years or so, costing taxpayers roughly $1 billion a year to keep the troops there. would this be seen as a violation of the president's commitment to the american people to get all troops out of afghanistan by the end of 2014? >> reporter: well, it depends how you read the president's previous statements, wolf. it also depends on how things change in afghanistan.
nothing then we go off that cliff. if we do nothing then current law requires all those rates to go up. that may be what "the wall street journal" is referring to, the simple fact that a default operation with no intervention by congress will result in a rate increase. >> they're also -- they are also clearly saying that if republicans can negotiate a deal in which rates went up somewhat but not all the way back to the 39.6 top rate under president clinton that they would deserve credit for doing that. they seem to be suggesting you would be increasing rates somewhat and. do you think that's an idea that will take root among senate republicans? >> perhaps so. i haven't seen the editorial. i don't know specifically beyond what you've described what they're saying. >> there is room, there, you think, for raising rates? not as much as letting the bush tax rates expire completely and closing loopholes, you think that might be fertile ground, is that what you're saying? >> i don't think that's a good idea. it's a horrible idea to raise taxes on anyone. for rates to go up in this economy is
